Tim Tebow, others stranded on the NFL Island of Misfit Players

Blog

The “Island of Misfit Toys” was an island where all of the unwanted toys were sent during the TV special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” (You really should hear Dave Dameshek’s take on Rudolph in the latest Dave Dameshek Football Program).

To be honest, I was kind of fond of the “Island of Misfit Toys.” I mean, a cowboys riding an ostrich and a bird that swims? Awesome toys. Some people have no imagination.

But the NFL has its own version with these following players:

Tim Tebow

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Speaking of a bird that can’t fly, that reminds me an awful lot of a pass thrown by Tebow. And now his girlfriend has dumped him too?

Larry Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald has been so sad on the island; he might even welcome a visit from Tebow. But probably not.

Mario Williams

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Williams left a successful team (the Houston Texans) to go play for Buffalo. Remember the last time a big-time free agent left a winning team to join the Bills? You don’t, because it never happened. Just kidding, we love you Buffalo. But Williams just recently started to justify his huge contract.

Jake Long

————————————————————————————————————————————–

With winning NFL teams searching for credible offensive lineman, Long continues to spend the prime of his career in Miami. At least the island is sunny.

Maurice Jones-Drew

————————————————————————————————————————————–

A capable offensive player and the Jacksonville Jaguars are a rare combination. Don’t worry, you’ll get company from Cecil Shorts soon.
